Veterans's PTSD Handbook: How to File and Collect on Claims for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Veterans's PTSD Handbook How to File and Collect on Claims for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Author:John D. Roche From the author of The Veteran?s Survival Guide, The Veteran?s PTSD Handbook addresses the obstacles that veterans face when filing for benefits related to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). One of the greatest obstacles, John Roche writes, is establishing a connection between a veteran?s service and PTSD. Because both combat stresso... more »rs and noncombat stressors can cause PTSD and because of the difficulties in diagnosing the condition, filing a successful claim for benefits based on PTSD is difficult.
In the same accessible, self-help style used in The Veteran?s Survival Guide, Roche offers detailed instructions on how to prepare a well-grounded claim for veterans? benefits relating to PTSD. He also discusses the four years he spent helping one veteran establish a ?service connection? for his PTSD claim with Veterans Affairs. This book will be required reading for any veteran or veteran?s dependent who wishes to obtain his or her well-earned benefits and for those officials of veterans? service organizations who assist veterans with their claims.« less
